Today President-elect Trump, via a tweet, told the country that he thinks the price Boeing wants to build the new Air Force One presidential aircraft is too high and he wants it canceled.
This morning in the lobby of Trump tower President-elect Trump commented on the contract with Boeing saying, “Well, the plane is totally out of control. It’s going to be over $4 billion for the Air Force One program, and I think that’s ridiculous. I think Boeing is doing a little bit of a number. We want Boeing to make a lot of money, but not that much money.”
The comments and tweet show that ‘businessman’ Donald Trump seems to already be looking at ways to save the government money. Trump spokesman Jason Miller said Trump will be looking at all aspects of Pentagon spending trying to find cost savings.
